Any information if this game will be available to purchase? I'd love to have this on my 3DS.

Activision owns the TMNT license. Besides, why would anyone buy a difficult game?

Not sure if you're being sarcastic or not.. but just in case you're serious, I bet it's because people like a challenge. When I buy a game and I'm not at least the slightest bit challenged I'll be pretty disappointed with my purchase. That being said TMNT is pretty nightmarish freaking hard and frustrating.. I imagine it'd be a little better with the VC restore points though. Those electric seaweed parts are ridiculous.

I feel like the notorious difficulty of this game came from it being poorly made, and there's nothing gratifying about that. I had no sense of accomplishment after beating the dam stage. I just wanted to turn it off.

I think Nintendo games are cool, and good.

Pretty much - it was untested Konami game. Poor hit detection, respawning enemies, unfair jumps, it was hard for all the wrong reasons. Bosses on the other hand were like slap in the face, broken or dead simple.

Speaking of Activision, they kill anything they touch pretty much nowadays.

This is one of my favorites. I am happy to own it on the wii virtual console. I like challenging games myself

Here is a quick reference chart to avoid any further confusion:
Challenging- original Mega Man series
Broken pile of garbage- TMNT

it was still an awesome game, and nostalgia alone is enough of a selling factor.

Not only that TMNT was removed from the Wii VC for licensing reasons, the current company that owns TMNT (Activision) also removed their games from the Wii VC recently (Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure and Shanghai II: Dragon's Eye) and wants nothing to do with the eShop (even all their 3DS and Wii U games are retail only).

Rest in Peace ShiftyLook
I keep these Nintendo Life threads updated: Missing 3DS VC and Wii U VC between regions, Full of list first party Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Gear games missing from the 3DS VC, and Full of list first party Game Boy Advance games missing from the Wii U VC.

I am not sure if it is because of Activision or Nickelodeon owning the TMNT rights now. But regardless of the fact it will probably never be on VC again.

I would put the original NES Castlevania into the broken pile of garbage. The limitations on the stairs and the knock-backs into pits were the game's biggest crimes against fun.

I have to disagree there is a strategy to win with Castlevania. You just have to take account when to get hit if you are going to be. Part of the game. At least the first time through is not unreasonable at all. (This is from someone who never played Castlevania due to hating Super Castlevania IV so much until Rondo of Blood was on Wii VC.(

The challenge in that game is extremely unfair at points. I think the music was the only thing that kept me plowing through.

lol. unfair? c'monnnn. You think that game is tough? Try Dracula's Curse, better yet go take on Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom, Ghosts 'n Goblins and Adventure Island. I crave a good challenge, it's simply a rarity these days with modern video games. the Nes got it right. B-)

Anyhoo, the Original Castlevania isn't that tough imo outside of Death who can be a major pain, i can blaze through it no problem. III: Dracula's curse is an entirely different story....

But yeah,...TMNT broken? Yup. Castlevania? Not a chance in hell. The only thing that is broken is your guys spirits because you can't beat the game. ;) :P

Original Mega Man as challenging in good way? I'm sorry, but there are a lot of cheap deaths, pixel perfect platforming, slowsdowns etc. Also, who can forget last stage with Wily? MM2 was relentless with frustrating platforming in later stages.

And original Castlevania? It's stupid easy (except few "crushing" deaths, that's total BS) and Death/Reaper is actually dead simple (no pun intended). I agree, the 3rd entry is unbelievable with difficulty.

For the record, I do not think that Castlevania is broken. Just cheap as all get-out. I can (relatively) easily smash it now, but I got the game when I was FIVE YEARS OLD. It was just death, death, death and seemed completely impenetrable.
I cannot speak on Castlevania III, as I never liked it enough to want to own it and therfore didn't put in the time to get great at it. The atmosphere that hooked me in the first two just wasn't there for some reason.
Can we just get back to talking about how awful TMNT is, please?

I remember renting TMNT on the NES when I was a kid cause I was such a huge TMNT fan. Boy was I disappointed. One thing I remember is where the heck all these bad guys came from? I mean most of the time in every other piece of TMNT media they fought Foot Soldiers and Mousers not generic looking guys with chainsaws or living beings made of fire (I am guessing that was suppose to be fire). Thankfully the later TMNT games fixed that.
